About Michele

I am a public school teacher and have been one for 37 years. I have been ESL certified for 24 years. I have had great success with many students. I have a history of bringing students from beginner level to advanced level or advanced high level in one year or less. I believe in English immersion and teaching vocabulary in context, rather than in isolation. I focus on reading and writing at the same time as speaking and listening, as reading and writing are evaluated more often in school, and vital to school success.This summer, I will be the lead ESL teacher for my building's summer school session. I would be excited to work with both adults and children, and know that with effort by both tutor and student, fluency in English is attainable. I am most comfortable working from my home as I have a wide variety of materials available, but am also willing to travel if necessary. I am a public school teacher and have been one for 37 years.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified Texas teacher (all subjects K-8, with additional ESL and GT certification), with 37 years of classroom experience. I am currently employed full-time in Alief ISD, and have been since 1981. I have both a B.Ed. and M.Ed.

Handwriting

I am a certified Texas teacher (all subjects K-8, with additional ESL and GT certification), with 37 years of classroom experience. I have both a B.Ed. and M.Ed. I have been trained in both Spencerian, Palmer and D'Nealian handwriting styles, and instruct my students in handwriting as a regular part of the Language Arts curriculum.

Phonics

I am a certified Texas teacher (all subjects K-8, with additional ESL and GT certification), with 37 years of classroom experience teaching reading. Of course phonics and phonemic awareness are vital components in the elementary reading curriculum. I am also skilled in teaching upper level phonics, which focuses on learning word meaning by analyzing Greek and Latin roots, prefixes and suffixes.

Social Studies

I am a certified Texas teacher in all subjects, grades K-8. Social Studies has been one of the subjects that I have taught for each of my 37 years of classroom experience. I am familiar with all of the Texas TEKS for Social Studies and am adept at designing lessons and student projects to address these TEKS. Furthermore, I am a history buff and read and explore as a hobby.

STAAR

I am a certified Texas teacher (all subjects, K-8) with additional ESL and GT certification. I have a total of 37 years classroom experience. I have prepared students for standardized testing every year, most recently for STAAR. This year my class had a 100% passing rate, with most students showing above acceptable annual growth.

Study Skills

I have been trained to teach AVID study skills and Thinking Maps to organize student thinking about academic content. I have worked with several middle and high school students to become more organized in their studies. In my regular classroom organization, note-taking, time management and overall study skills are incorporated into the curriculum.
